Reactive Rover Cambria


Does your leashed dog lunge, bark or go crazy at the sight of other dogs when out for a walk? This 45 minute workshop will focus on the dog's “reactive” behavior and equip you with new strategies to manage it. While frightening and unpleasant, this behavior more often indicates excitement or fear rather than aggression. Frequently, it can be “the other end of the leash”  that inadvertently reinforces the behavior. The first workshop will  review basic commands, help you anticipate a reactive burst, and teach you and your dog calm alternative responses.  Workshop is limited to 6 dogs per session. The cost is $45. Payment required at registration. No discounts applicable.
